Concretizing the First World Natural Heritage Site in the Alps Through Participatory Processes

Urs Wiesmann, Karina Liechti, Stephan Rist, 2005

This article presents an empirical interdisciplinary study of an extensive participatory process that was carried out in 2004 in the recently established World Natural Heritage Site "Jungfrau–Aletsch–Bietschhorn” in the Swiss Alps. The study used qualitative and quantitative empirical methods of social science to address the question of success factors in establishing and concretizing a World Heritage Site.
